It’s just coming up to noon. I’ve been up since four this morning. The dogs have been for three walks…..well two and an extended one on their own. The top button of my trousers has fallen off. They are Asda but the trousers cost less than a button so who am I to complain. I’ll just pat my bum and get on with life.
Last night we experienced continual rain. We are very close to the South Tyne and I was a trifle concerned about inundation, beautiful as the river is, I didn’t fancy becoming a part of it. No worries it stayed within it’s allotted territory. Almost!
Things here are a week or more behind. The roe Deer are still in their winter coats. No sign of Frog or Toad. No sound of Woodpecker either. Last year this woodland was full of Woodpeckers. Annoying as their are tap tap tapping and camera radar is I hope they are still around.
This is not a large wood it runs for about a mile along the banks of the Tyne and is at most half a mile wide. It is bigger than it looks. It took me well over an hour to locate two West Highland Terriers. I walked them on the lead as far as the river would allow. Then, silly me, assuming any deer would have made themselves scarce let them off for the run home. Deer everywhere for a minute then no Deer and no dogs. Little devils. So that was it for today. The feeders are up and attracting Nuthatch, Great Tits, Blue Tits and Chaffinch. I’ll try for some pictures tomorrow.
That is all for today, not one of the better ones. I’ll see what Wednesday sends my way.
